Well, well, well, August sure does look jam-packed and full of Wild West Exodus delights... Let's not keep you hanging too long though - time to dive straight in!
The Dark Nation Posse, led by the corrupt and wraith-like Wicasasni, is the second Posse set to be released for The Hex. The Dark Nation Posse is now available to pre-order alongside the Secret Service Posse, lead by none other than Abraham Lincoln himself (wielding an axe, of course).
Need some support on the tabletop? We have some great support units on pre-order for Warrior Nation and Enlightened in the form of the heroic Kaga Brothers and a set of ruthless Enlightened Brutes. Hex players will be able to pre-order the Hexalith, an artefact imbued with the essence of the Hex, which was previously only available in the Absolute Power Posse.
We can also announce that the Divine Intervention Starter Set and the Absolute Power Starter Set are available to pre-order from Warcradle Studios from today! These sets include everything from the previously released posse sets, with the addition of the Rules & Gubbins Set.
Lastly, with Gen Con 2018 starting next week, make sure to get hold of your very own Nakano Gozen either online or at the event itself!
As always, make sure to check the whole of this months pre-orders so you don't miss out on any of our new Wild West Exodus products.

Dark Nation Posse
The corruption of Walks Looking was the doorway to the tainting of the Warrior Nation. Ghost Wolf's daughter became tainted by The Hex and transformed into Wicasasni to become a twisted creature of malice and vengeance. Wicasasni took great delight in warping and corrupting the minds and bodies of her own people, creating a "Dark Nation".
Though Wicasasni was eventually captured by Ghost Wolf and the tainted aspect driven out, the wraith-like creature that emerged was just as deadly and even more malevolent than before. Walks Looking returned to her people with half a soul, the other half now sustaining her darker aspect that had been given independence in the exorcism. While Wicasasni can no longer warp the flesh of her followers she is still surrounded by twisted men and women who are the product of her previous corrupting influence. Khali, Camazotz, Seke and Nizhoni now work with Wicasasni and together the Dark Nation will tear down the world of humanity and remake it in their own image.
The Dark Nation Posse contains five multi-part resin miniatures:
Secret Service Posse
Desperate times call for desperate measures and Abraham Lincoln believes that the times of the Dystopian Age are desperate indeed. Faking his own assassination in order to work unhindered by the demands of office, Director Lincoln now fights against the Union’s enemies alongside those men and women trusted enough to join his Secret Service.
Lincoln and his agents wage a war in the shadows, defending their beloved country from threats that the general public must have no knowledge about. Whatever it takes so that the good folk of the Union of Federated States can sleep soundly in their beds. With the assistance of his right-hand man Robert Pinkerton, his top agents Lucinda Loveless and Camilla Blanche, Henry Courtwright, Leah Kingston and Milo Jefferson, Lincoln has the tools he needs to tackle any situation.
The Secret Service Posse contains six multi-part resin miniatures:
1x Abraham Lincoln
1x Robert Pinkerton
1x Lucinda Loveless
1x Camilla Blanche
1x Henry Courtwright
1x Milo Jefferson
1x Leah Kingston
7 x Bases.
Red Oak Watch Tower
Dominating the skyline of towns like Red Oak, these watchtowers allow the residents to keep a watchful eye for the telltale dust clouds that announce the arrival of Iron Horses and the bandits who often ride them. With parts to assemble it instead as a water tower, the Red Oak Watchtower is a great addition to your table or even the centre point for one.
This Wild West Exodus Scenery kit contains:
1x Red Oak Watchtower Building
Options to build a Water Tower.

The enemies arrayed against the Warrior Nation are many and powerful and the Great Spirit commands that they shun the use of the tainted technology from the Enlightened. Despite this limitation, the Warrior Nation make use of Gatling guns, heavy crossbows and other tribal weapons to destroy their foes, making up for a lack of such alien advantages with sheer heroism and faith in their traditions.
Those who follow the Brotherhood of Kaga have resigned themselves to the fact that they will likely die in battle. Their use of support weapons and close proximity to the most deadly of conflicts makes this a certainty. The Kaga Brothers have their funeral rites upon initiation and their ranks are filled with those seeking atonement or with nothing else to lose. Deadly and valorous, the presence of Kaga Brothers in a force brings death with them, not just for themselves but for many of their enemies too.
The Kaga Brothers kit contains three multi-part resin miniatures:
1x Kaga Brother with Plainswalker Crossbow
2x Kaga Brother with Gatling Gun
The ruthless pursuit of scientific progress can blind many to the moral questions raised by such progress. Such is the case with many of the creations of the Covenant of the Enlightened, Brutes being a prime example of this blindness.
Through the use of RJ-1027, the subject’s impressive frame has its musculature increased significantly and performance and strength are further enhanced with mechanical augmentations. The result is a hulking servant capable of wielding the heaviest firearms and able to fold sheet metal as if it were paper. Brutes are employed as enforcers, soldiers, and bodyguards by the Enlightened and have proven to be formidable in all these roles.
The Enlightened Brutes kit contains two multi-part resin miniatures:
1x Enlightened Brute with Flamethrower miniature
1x Enlightened Brute with Juiced Gatling Gun miniature
The energies of the Hex can be focussed and channelled in a number of ways, one being the creation of a Hexalith. These otherwise mundane objects have been imbued with the essence of the Hex and can be drawn on when needed to channel the extra-terrestrial power.
Hexaliths can be made from any material but many hours of care and focus are required to attune it to the other-worldly energies. The resultant effect often creates an object of strange and unsettling design directly from the tainted mind of the creator.
The Hexalith kit contains one single piece resin miniature:
1x Hexalith miniature
